Scorpion Services for Subdivision Homes
Scorpions should be viewed on a spectrum somewhere between an insect and a rodent. Traditional extermination practices will not work for scorpion control like it does for crickets and roaches. You wouldn’t expect to spray and have rodents go away, and it doesn’t work very well for scorpions either (even though spraying can be an important component of a full scorpion control program. Sprays will kill some individual scorpions but not the paths. Additionally, the sprays tend to flush sickly scorpions inside the home and these are the ones we often get stung by.
Comprehensive Interior & Exterior Sealing
Along with Supportive Strategies
Scorpions consist of a neighborhood population that form paths and where one is seen, more will eventually follow. This is made quite evident by common trends, such as one neighbor having severe issues with scorpions while another rarely sees them. Or, one side of the street or Arizona subdivision seems to have scorpions and the other side does not. The goal for an individual property should be to change the paths and re-direct elsewhere.
The first step is to get and keep them out of the house. Therefore, a resident shouldn’t start where they “think” the problem is, but where they least want to find a scorpion. Better a Scorpion come in through a front door than behind a ceiling fan over a bed!
Maintaining Home Functionality & Health
Maintaining the functionality and health of the home is essential. There are exhaust and weep components for gases and moisture to be expelled. These components should never be compromised or altered. Additionally, the look and aesthetics of the seals are important and should be invisible and giving the home a more “finished” look.
Properties in a subdivision neighborhood benefit from natural, non-poisonous repellents to repel scorpions away from the doors, windows, garages and the property as a whole. Products such as Scorpion Shield and Scorpion Defense have different purposes than insecticides and should be used in a much different manner. These non-poisonous products are best applied by the resident and not a professional pest control technician.
Scorpion Populations Increasing
For years the scorpion population has been growing throughout Phoenix area neighborhoods, in large part due to the banning of harsher insecticides by the EPA, the Go Green Movement and warmer weather patterns. No longer will “just spraying” remedy a subdivision scorpion issue in Arizona. A methodical and comprehensive approach is required, or they can easily become a never-ending battle.
